happy weekend!

Can you believe it’s November already? October passed rather quickly for me, but it was a month filled with a few exciting milestones. I finally revealed this space to friends and family, so – welcome new readers! Your support and kind words meant the world to me this week. Thanks so much for all the love.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned ahead. Here are a few links that’ve caught my eye lately…

• Excellent advice for entrepreneurs à la Tory Burch. (Follow your passion, be authentic, and buckle up.)
• A collection of rare photos of Lower Manhattan dating from the 1920s.
• This recipe for Brown Sugar Cookies looks simply ah-maz-ing.
• Newly released book from Aerin Lauder capturing what it means to live beautifully, and how world travel and family have formed her sense of style.
• My favorite slippers happen to be on sale… what about these scarves and this blanket, too? So cozy for winter!
• A go-to guide filled with entertaining ideas, tips and tricks for the holiday season.
